With over 25 years’ experience as a strategic GIS Consultant, David has worked with clients throughout NZ and worldwide. David provides consultant support to the GIS community, along with business advice and mentoring small to medium businesses, particularly those who are seeking to globalise their business.
David was the founder and Managing Director of NorthSouth GIS (NSG) NZ, (formerly Explorer Graphics Ltd), one of the longest established and most successful geospatial consultancies in NZ. Under David’s direction, NSG became the leading provider of GIS implementation and development services based on Esri technology in NZ. David’s vision led to the formation of the NSG Group and the establishment of affiliated companies in the United States, with whom he actively participated in strategic business decisions, and GIS implementation, as well as the development of international business partnerships. In late 2014, David sold NSG NZ to a multinational consultancy.
